Starting at $17.80 an hour for most direct support positions, we offer the chance to work a variety of days and hours – and that means we have schedules that work for everyone. Plus, there’s paid training, vacation time and sick leave. There’s also extra pay when you work overnights and weekends. Other perks include tuition assistance and rewards for work anniversaries.
Our frontline employees are compassionate, highly skilled care providers who ensure that every interaction affords dignity and respect to those they support. It is a worthy and essential job, this work in support of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities — a job that deserves a wage beyond minimum. We start full-time residential and respite positions at $17.80 an hour and relief positions at $16.55 an hour. When you work a Saturday or Sunday you earn an extra 50 cents an hour. If you work any day between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. you earn an extra 75 cents an hour. If you happen to work an overnight shift during the weekend, you get the higher of the two options, which is 75 cents and brings you to $18.55 an hour.
On top of that, if you work a shift at one of our sites that supports people with more complex needs, you earn an additional $1 an hour. Now, you’re up to $19.55 an hour if you work overnight at one of these sites.
In addition, we pay overtime for not just more than 40 hours worked in a week but also for more than 10 hours worked in a day. This provides time and a half each time someone agrees to commit to a double shift, as an added thank-you. We also pay overtime even in weeks when you have used holiday or vacation time; we still count that as time worked!
To help you keep more of your money, we offer a homebuyers dream club, low-cost health care, discounts and more. Some of our other top-of-class benefits include bonuses, vacation time and sick leave, broad choice in health and dental insurance, 11 paid holidays – three of which are unassigned so you can celebrate the days that are important to you – and a generous retirement contribution.
